Forum rules
You're welcome to trade Acorn-related stuff with other forum members here - the rule of thumb to follow when trading, is that items or services offered should be of interest to our Acorn community. Do NOT use multiple accounts - please trade with your regular (and only) forum account. If you're giving items away, please make it clear if you would be unhappy with the recipient selling on some or all of the items. Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift. We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of. This forum is not for advertising items you have for sale on ebay or other third party marketplaces.

FS: Control Universal EuroBEEB

Postby jonb » Tue Sep 12, 2017 8:00 am

Hi all

I've decided I need to let my CU EuroBEEB go as I have way too many computers here. Mine is not working properly as I have documented on StarDot (search the forum for EUROBEEB and you'll see what I mean). There is some battery corrosion evident (battery was removed ages ago) although I can't see any badly damaged tracks. It sits in a 19" Eurorack and looks like an Acorn System machine. The rack has a good power supply and there's a power switch on the front and a wide blanking plate. There is a CU parallel I/O card with it, and the EuroBEEB card itself has BBC BASIC onboard and (I think) 32K RAM. I have a copy of the terminal ROM that you put in the BBC Micro (it uses this as a way of uploading / downloading programs and data, and you connect it to the Micro with an RS-423 serial cable).

There's a picture here: http://www.stardot.org.uk/forums/viewto ... eeb#p90795

This is a quick post to see if anyone is interested in it. I'm seeking £160 plus shipping for the machine and terminal ROM, and this is just to cover the amount I paid for it.

Cheers
JonB

Yeah, akin to a banger of a car in a scrap yard... :lol:

Finally...

All together and powered up. Well, the light is on, at least.. You can hear the switched mode PSU starting up and I have tested the voltages which seem good.

I have it standing up on its feet so you can see it presents at an angle to the user. These fold down if a more level appearance is preferred.
